9) Use the ‘browse’ button to browse to the location of your extracted android download form step 2

10) Select either the ‘flash.json or the flash-no-erase-all.json’ files
I selected ‘flash’ as I wanted to clear the device and remove windows, you can also select ‘flash-no-erase-all’ so that windowns wouldnt be touched

11) In the ‘configuration’ dropdown, I selected ‘recover’, you can also select ‘blank’ or ‘update’

12) Click ‘start to flash’
wait for the device to reboot a few times and then android will be installed
